Ascent Trip ReportI couldn’t find much helpful info for this peak so studied TOPO maps and tried the east ridge. Road is ok for 4x4 as there are some deep ditches. I headed straight up the ridge and ran into thick brush for several hundred feet elevation. On the return I headed down through open forest, much better! Take the north track to avoid that brush at the start. Ridge is half ok and half brushy, lots of rhododendrons. A couple of buttresses posed little problems.
